BACK IN 2015

I’M BACK!

Well it’s the first Monday of 2015, which means for most of you it’s back to the daily work grind. For me being self employed, this means attempting to get my chocolate and turkey filled butt to the gym!

I admit I am NOT a gym rat… in fact I hate it! I am envious of people that love the gym.

Yoga = hate it gives me a headache

Running = apparently I have a weird run

Swimming = I might drown

Anyway 2015 is my year to turn myself into a definite GYM RAT.

Day one:

Well my progress so far is my outfit… got that sorted!

Singing in the RAIN

Singing in the RAIN

So to put a damper on your summer (no pun intended), if you are in Toronto then, the heavens have decided to piss down on us today. So there really isn’t anything else to talk about but summer rain fashion.

On a rainy day … whatever the season… we look in our closets and always tend to pull out the darkest shades available… black, grey, navy blue. This is all perfect for me as I live in black and grey. Above are some outfit ideas for you to stay fashionable in today’s sucky weather.

Look 1:

Stripes seem to be the go to print during the rain… no idea why… but I dig it.
For this look I paired a striped Dr Denim ‘Blair’ long sleeve top, with Bershka’s boyfriend jeans… on the foot Saint Laurent studded Rangers boot. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color in your accessories, for this I added a Aldo necklace…. oh and don’t forget your brolly, this one is from Pasotti.

Look 2:

Black … it goes with everything and suits pretty much anyone. Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you still can’t rock the short shorts look, these are from Sheinside. If it’s a little chilly out pair those short shorts with a little extra coverage, add a big comfy sweater like this one from Enzyme. Add a little boot to keep those feet dry in the puddles… and these boots are actually from Payless! And of course compliment your look with some accessories, such as this sun, moon and star necklace from Charming Charlie…. and this rock star umbrella from… obviously… Alexander McQueen.

Just because it’s raining it doesn’t mean you have to stay inside, or wear a plastic poncho. You can look fashionable in the rain… rock those brollys!

A Fashion Farewell

A Fashion Farewell

After 27 years of business, Canadian designer Lida Baday has decided to close up shop.

Her creations sold in such places as: The Bay, Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstroms. They have also worn by celebrities such as powerhouse Oprah Winfrey.

Baday’s Toronto studio will be holding a sample sale June 20th until June 21st at 70 Claremont St. Everything is marked down to $80 and less… this is a massive markdown, from normal sale prices being $1,500-$1,800!

However with this sad news, we wish all the best to the Baday family.
